Praise
"A masterpiece. it mesmerizes the reader. Those interested in the intersection between ethnic identity and the American political system will find this story revealing and enlightening. The museum could not have found a better person to tell this story than Edward Linenthal."
From the Publisher
Annotation Linenthal, professor of Religion and American Culture at the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh, outlines the 15-year campaign to build the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. He traces the museum's beginnings in domestic politics, through the many stages of its conceptualization and every aspect of its realization.
Editors Note Since its first year in 1993, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has attracted more than 15 millino visitors, sometimes at the rate of 10,000 a day, each of whom has walked away with an indelible impression of awe in the face of the unimaginable. This lively, honest, behind-the-scenes account details the emotionally complex fifteen-year struggle surrounding the museum's birth.
